Charity concert with international cellist Alexander Baillie
Leytonstone based charity Carefree Kids are putting on a concert at Forest School on Saturday with internationally renowed cellist Alexander Baillie, accompanied on piano by John Thwaites. Works will include Tchaikovsky, Schubert, John Ireland and César Franck. Carefree Kids does good work throughout Waltham Forest and neighbouring boroughs, and the concert is being supported by the Mayor of Waltham Forest, so come along and support this, their first ever concert. You can buy tickets on the night. More details: www.carefreekids.org
The Stone Space has What’s Going On?, an exhibition of works by Leytonstone based artist Jeff Cox that explores the themes of memory, relationships, birth, sex and loss. Check the Stone Space website for more details and opening times.
The Woodhouse Players are putting on Honour at The Welsh Church Hall on Friday and Saturday.
Described in reviews when it was first produced in Melbourne in 1995, then at the National Theatre as ‘an absolute gem’, it does contain some strong language and sexual content. See the Woodhouse Players website for more details.
Leytonstone Museum is looking for Leytonstone People
From the comfort of your computer chair, you can also see the next phase of Karen Pamplin’s online Leytonstone Museum. The new phase, announced today, is called People of Leytonstone, but I’m not going to tell you what it’s about, you’ll need to read up on it on the Leytonstone Museum!
